Can you Identify this Gizmo?

Photo attached. I have my handheld radio hanging in it. It's in the cockpit and keyhole shaped. My guess is that it's an autopilot attachment point... Thanks!

You are correct.......It's a place to lock in a tiller pilot.

Do not go where the path may lead.........
go instead where there is no path........
and leave a trail.
